Health Insurance Requirement

All full-time undergraduate students and graduate students attending Bucknell University must enroll in or waive out of the health insurance coverage offered through the University. All students (except international students, see below) providing verifiable proof of comparable coverage may waive the purchase of the sponsored plan. Students failing to submit proof of coverage or whose plans do not provide comparable coverage will be automatically enrolled in the plan offered by the University at the end of the enrollment period. Students will receive information regarding the University-sponsored plan through a summer mailing. Information will also be available in the students' myBucknell portal beginning in early August.

To complete registration for fall semester classes, the online waiver/enrollment form must be completed prior to the start of classes.

Bucknell University requires all international students to purchase the University-sponsored medical insurance program. The premium for this coverage is automatically charged to the student’s account and enrollment is automatic. There is also coverage available for dependent spouses and children that can be purchased through the school-sponsored plan.
